What if I told you that YOU can afford luxury student accommodation in Preston, just a few hundred meters from UCLan Campus?
When you are looking for the best deal on student accommodation in Preston or any university city, you need to first consider your budget. Once you have determined your budget you need to consider all your monthly and variable expenses. — Don’t forget that on top of rent, tuition fees, study materials, etc. You might have to pay water, electricity, heating, WiFi bills, insurance, and other bills. If your accommodation is located far from campus you will also need to set part of your budget aside for public transport.
This means that the accommodation with the lowest weekly rent, might not be the cheapest option in the end. In fact, finding the best price on student apartments in Preston can be a jungle…
Here is how you calculate the real price of your student accommodation: Rent + utility bills (note that the can vary from month to month or time of the year) + basic content insurance + estimated weekly transport fees.
You might be able to find the lowest rent by searching for student lets in Preston further away from UCLan. But be aware, because you might easily end up spending more than you save on transportation. So all you end up with is spending a lot of time commuting. Time that could spend on a student job instead if money is an issue.
Another option is to find accommodation in an older building. Older student housing generally consist of small rooms, with shared kitchen and bath Making this option cheaper on both rent and utility bills. However! Older buildings are not as well insulated making them expensive to heat in the winter. And the small rooms and lack of common areas means that you will be spending more time out, which also adds to your overall expenses.
The better option is often to search for student rooms for rent close to UCLan. That will save you the transport bills and you can actually find brand new and spacious accommodation at great prices — even walking distance from campus.
Two options to consider would be Canterbury Hall on Garstang Road and Warehouse Apartments on Victoria Street. Located 500 meters and 300 meters respectively, they are both walking distance from UCLan — even before an early morning class. Prices start at £82 (Warehouse Apartments) and £125 (Canterbury Hall), but in the price of rent everything is included. And I mean e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. From all utility bills, to basic content insurance, access to modern common areas, free WiFi and 40” flatscreen TV. So the price of rent is the price you pay for your accommodation. It does not get easier to budget than that. And on top you will be living in brand a new building with plenty of modern facilities.
